The BBC Philharmonic returns to Lichfield with its Chief Conductor Juanjo Mena and Festival favourite Tasmin Little. They bring a programme of glittering excitement fit for a final concert and featuring music by two British composers whose lives were marked by the First World War.  The soaring beauty of The Lark Ascending and gentle portraits of Enigma Variations, of which Nimrod has become an almost patriotic anthem in its own right, are matched by Mendelssohn’s atmospheric Hebrides Overture.  Moeran’s Violin Concerto, written during visits to Ireland and strongly reflecting his love of the landscape in County Kerry, completes a tour of the British Isles in this commemorative year.
